(WORT) — This week, Exact Sciences dropped out of the development deal struck with the city to relocate its headquarters to downtown Madison. Instead the company will expand at its current location at University Research Park.
The prospect of a big employer moving operations to Madison’s urban center has largely overshadowed the city’s stated objectives for the Judge Doyle Square projects. The priorities of the private-public development include:
- Replacing the crumbling Government East Parking Ramp.
- Adding valuable downtown real estate to the tax rolls.
- Remodeling and making much needed repairs to the Madison Municipal Building.
- A new hotel to help serve the Monona Terrace Convention Center.
Now that Exact Sciences is no longer participating, what’s next for the embattled Judge Doyle Square project?
